Career-Focused Education for Ohio's Students: Sample Instructional Units. Integrated Technical and Academic Competencies (ITAC).
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Career-Technical and Adult Education.
This book is designed to help academic teachers in middle or secondary education develop an appreciation of career-focused education and begin the process of designing career-focused instruction. (Career-focused instruction is educational programming in which curriculum content and learning experiences clearly connect to the world of work.) For career-technical teachers, these sample instructional units give rich examples of how integrated instruction works in real classrooms. The book contains seven fully-developed, career-focused instructional units at the secondary level. It provides one unit for each of these academic areas: arts, foreign language, language arts, mathematics, and science--plus two units that are interdisciplinary (chemistry, English, and social studies; social studies, language arts, and science). Each unit begins with a section entitled Project Highlights with some or all of these components: instructional topic; grade level; time; overview; major objectives; performance objective; preparatory information for teachers/materials needed; career task scenario; guiding questions; and lists of instructional activities and assessments. Lessons within each unit have some or all of these components: objectives addressed; procedures; assignment(s);activities; career extension; handouts; assessment; and resources. (YLB)
